Paper Abstract

The Michelson interferometer for passive atmospheric sounding (MIPAS) is a high resolution Fourier-transform spectrometer to measure concentration profiles of stratospheric constituents on a global scale. It observes the atmospheric emissions from the earth horizon (limb) throughout the thermal infrared region (685 - 2410 cm-1, 14.6 - 4.15 micrometers ), which allows the simultaneous measurement of more than 20 key trace gases, including the complete NOy-family and several CFCs. MIPAS is selected as an ESA-payload for the Envisat-1 project of the Polar Orbiting Earth-observation Mission POEM. Launch is planned for 1998.
